A Trading Company Employee Isekai Survival ~I’m Definitely Not Interacting With Other People~ Chapter 3

Chapter 3

ーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーー

The vegetation I collected were purple flowers with jagged leaves, red flowers with round leaves and blue flowers with round leaves. I collected several of them along with their roots. When I used appraisal on them, it only said 【flower】without any additional information. Even after I smelled the flowers, the result of the appraisal didn’t change. 

I had no other choice. I just had to try to eat them myself. 

I decided the first one would be the red flower with round leaves. The reason I chose it was because this flower looked somewhat normal. I didn’t have any strong reason other than that. 

I munched on the leaves and gulped it down. It was bitter and I could feel my body start to sweat a little. Then, I used appraisal again. 

【Mylene Antidote Herb: An antidote herbs that can neutralize weak poison like gadol poison,  badol poison and other weak poison.】

The description that used to be only a mere flower, changed into that of an antidote herb. I understood that the appraisal skill had a specification that would give out a different description of an item after I had a bite of it.

Next, I tried eating the round leaves of the blue flower. I munched on the grass. Then, I could somehow smell the nice scent of a herb. My body felt warm here and there. I could also feel my physical condition improving for the better. Then, I used appraisal again. 

【Irene Herb: A medicinal herb. It’s beneficial for restoring physical condition and is an ingredient for making potion.】

A medicine herb! A staple of the fantasy world! It seemed I needed to be more proactive in harvesting this item. 

The last one, the purple flower with jagged leaves. I had a bit of a bad feeling about this plant but… I munched it away anyway… 

I felt a sting the moment the plant touched my tongue. 

“Argh-”

I had difficulty breathing and my vision kept flickering. At the same time, I could feel my body temperature rapidly becoming cold. I roughly grabbed the mylene herb from earlier and quickly ate it. 

After lying on my back and resting for a while, I could somehow regain my breathing back. 

『Individual Name: Okuda Keigo has acquired Poison Resistance Lv 1』

The mechanical announcement resounded in my head but that wasn’t the problem now. I really thought I was going to die. Though I was still breathing heavily, I managed to stand up again. I shook my head, trying to clear myself from this dizzy feeling. 

I appraised the blue flower with jagged leaves again. 

【Badol Poisonous Plant: A poisonous plant that can deplete one’s physical condition.】

………….. I… Just what am I doing by myself?

 ◇◇◇

From then on, I decided to collect more mylene herb and irene herb to cultivate medicinal and antidote herbs. For the time being, I collected the plant up to its root, harvested some of its leaves and planted the rest in front of my house.

I still had some fertilizer amongst my farm tools so I made sure to spread some fertilizer and tilled the soil with a hoe first. Incidentally, I also had some seed potatoes so I planted them too. Potatoes were one of the staple plants in Hokkaido. 

I decided to use irene herb as a chicken feed. I made that decision based on the fact that irene herb was not poisonous so the chicken wouldn’t die if they ate it. 

As for drinking water, I cut the top part of the empty water bottle that I had planned on throwing. I used the cut water bottle along with the bucket to gather rainwater in order to secure drinkable water for now. 

“Now then, let’s begin my survival life.”

Right.

At this time, I felt more ‘alive’ than I ever was. I finally felt my real life was really starting and my heart began to pound out of excitement.
